Denim Shirt Dress

I’ve been loving the denim look I’ve been seeing everywhere lately. Last summer I grabbed a few metres of this lightweight and slightly stretchy denim from the remnant bin at Fabricland and held on to it like a small child clings to a blanket. Just kidding! But I did mull it over for awhile. What was I going to make this pretty heathered fabric into? And voila! Denim shirt dress!

I added a front patch pocket to give it a little detail. There is white top-stitching around the sleeve hem and pocket too. For the hem of the dress I added a little extra weight by doubling up a separate piece of fabric and binding it onto the hem. And then the white top-stitching again.

I love the simplicity of this dress and I think it can be accessorized in so many different ways! A great belt some days? and maybe some big jewelry?! Yes please.

I like the versatility of this dress for being wearable in different seasons. It will layer up nicely in the fall with some tights and a cardi.
